In the beginning, designers Brigit and Kenna set out to create an all-leather sandal with a molded arch, and had no idea that it could be such a challenge! What most people don’t realize is that truly 100% leather footwear is quite rare in the market. Most manufacturers combine leather uppers with other synthetic components, and call them “leather” footwear. Making (and wearing) all-leather footwear is a passion of theirs: styles that will last a decade, or two (or forever). . . which means no cutting corners. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, 15.9 million children under 18 in the US live in households where they are unable to consistently access enough nutritious food necessary for a healthy life. With every pair of sandals purchased, beek will donate a meal for a child in need.
